Australia’s Unlock the Past are known for bringing international guest presenters to Australian shores both for their cruises and roadshows as well as some other events they’ve held. And they’re doing it again in 2014 with the “Chris Paton and Thomas MacEntee Downunder Roadshow”.
Both Thomas MacEntee and Chris Paton are guest presenters on the 4th Unlock the Past Cruise, but even if you are not going on the cruise you will have the opportunity to meet and listen to presentations from these experts, as they tour Australia visiting Perth, Adelaide, Hobart, Melbourne, Canbera, Sydney and Brisbane.
Chris, who some of you would know from his previous visits to Australia, is a professional genealogist from Scotland, whose expertise lie in Irish and Scottish research. While Thomas who may not be quite as well-known in this country (except to those on social media), is a genius not only in US genealogy research, but also in utilising social media and technology to advantage to help with research, and is widely sought after for his technology presentations throughout the US.
